But that hasn’t stopped a number of ŠKODA FABIA R5 drivers from pitting their wits against everything the Rally Catalunya has to offer. Alongside two ŠKODA Motorsport pairings, Mexico’s Benito Guerra Jr. is driving for the Motorsport Italia team. Driving alongside his Spanish co-driver Daniel Cué, he is looking to add to his two WRC2 podium finishes so far this season.
Ole Christian Veiby already has one WRC2 victory to his name this year and he is competing again for the Printsport Oy team alongside co-driver Stig Rune Skjærmoen. The Turkish pairing of Orhan Avcioglu / Burcin Korkmaz are also taking part for the Toksport WRT team, with the Swiss driver Jérémie Toedtli and his French co-driver Antoine Paque also starting in a FABIA R5.
